countries have kicked off negotiations on a huge solar energy project in the sahara desert. u.s. president barack obama has arrived in new jersey to tour the devastation left in the wake of super storm sandy. >> obama was joined by new jersey governor chris christie, who is republican, but christie has praised the way the president has handled the crisis. they viewed storm damage by helicopter. obama will also be meeting with residents and emergency workers. >> cleanup work is in full swing on the east coast after sandy flooded cities, washed out bridges, and caused billions of dollars in damage. >> but new york city is making it clear it is back in business. mayor michael bloomberg rate in the opening bell at the new york stock exchange, which was closed for two days. >> the storm killed over 40 people on the east coast and caused unprecedented damage. >> life is slowly returning to normal in new york. on wall street, major stock their first two-day closure ine- over a century. emergency generators provided the power. most of lower manhattan is still in the dark. an unusual event in the c
-section, the frictional resistance is the minimum, so the water loses very little energy flowing over the channel. if it's a wide, flat channel, a fairly shallow river, there's a greater surface area along the banks and the bottom, and that slows the stream down, too. the texture of a stream bed also influences stream velocity. roughness is a function of the materials over which it flows, so if it's flowing over gravel and boulders, there's more resistance to the flow. that slows the river. if it's flowing over muds and clays, like along the lower mississippi river, there's less resistance, and it flows a little faster. the velocity of a river also tends to increase if the amount of water in the river channel increases. the quantity of water moving through a river is called its discharge. the discharge of a river is how much water it's actually carrying. we usually measure this as a volume per unit time. the united states commonly says cubic feet per second. most of the world uses cubic meters per second moving down the channel. discharge increases from the head of the stream to the stream mouth as the

a stop trading. the markets, when they ropen, will be focusing in part on energy prices, particularly gasoline prices because eight of the country's refineries producing about 8 percent of our daily supply in gasoline where in the path of sandy. about six of those refineries which haveeen operating a reduced capacity and are ramping up production leaving to refineries, bulk of them in new jersey. they have simply lost power and plotted and will be back quickly it is uncertain when they're will be returning to of storage products and production. recovery efforts under way tonight after the superstar and crippled the east coast. in new york city, subways and tunnels flooded. hundreds of thousands are without power, and joining us tonight on the phone, the former governor of new york, george pataki. good to have you with this. you have seen much of the devastation. can you compare this to anything that we have seen before? >> you know, it's really differ from what we've seen before. we have had terrible storms. hurricanes, blizzards we had the attacks of september 11th, but this, it wasn
of physical energy, it was so fast and widespread that the ultimate impact was less modest and if it had been a cat four or five storm. unlike in florida, you do not have entire towns missing their roofs. you generally end up having claims, which, you know, you look at the damage and say it must be astronomical. it will modestly be more reasonable. homes have been damage as opposed to being completely destroyed. liz: you look at berkshire hathaway which owns geico, some of these will see payoffs. you make a very interesting point in that is this was not necessarily a wind event, it was a storm surge event. most of that is covered by government storm insurance. if we look at the most expensive storms, could this be worse than the isaacs and hurricane andrew >> in public opinion, it is not always clear what really caused the damage. people fight with their insurers for years. as a practical matter, the biggest flood risk and storm surge risk will come not from personal customers, but rather from commercial concerns. not that there is anyone who looks at this and says it will not be a manageable

and shine has more energy needs for more energy than they can produce themselves, and to maintain the economic growth which they believe is essential. we observed that the south china sea is a potential source of energy supplies for china and that there is a contention among the nations in that region as to where the ownership and rights of access are to the south china sea. and this is conceivable that china might seek to reestablish its claim there by military coercion and that could lead them into a confrontation with the united states' desire to maintain free access. the best way of avoiding that military conflict is what we should see because the military conflict with china would be catastrophic for both nations, indeed for the whole region. so, we want to avoid that. i believe the best way of avoiding that is by maintaining a -- continuing to maintain a strong naval presence in the region, and by having an unambiguous commitment to doing that. i believe that our new national security strategy is that unambiguous commitment, and i believe that the u.s. navy is capable of mai

(laughter) and then sell it and get a calculator. wow, 8% bankruptcy rate, still, maybe that doesn't sound so bad. but compare that to mitt romney, top-notch bain capital venture capitalist. >> "the wall street journal" did some digging for today's paper it looked as 77 businesses bain invested in while romney led the firm. 22% of those companies either filed for bankruptcy or closed 8 years after the bain investment. >> jon: see, 22%! to 8% for the government. see?

. it has a huge amount of moisture. it has a huge amount of energy that goes into the winds. how does this happen? every climate scientist knows perfectly well that when you have global warming you get more evaporation over the oceans lots more moisture in the air. when that happens you get heat in the oceans. heat transfers in storms into winds. the energy of the heat goes into the energy of the winds. the fact that we have this is a normal thing to happen when you have global warming. it is going to happen but you don't know exactly when and you don't know exactly where and you don't know exactly how big. but you do know these things are happening and they're going to happen. >> jennifer: so the purpose of this conversation is to convey to people, progressives who know that there is a causal link to be clear about it. to not be fudging about it. be clear. there is a systemic causation that links human activity and climate change to these huge weather events. >> right. systemic causation, we have a name for it.

this extreme storm is related to the warmer ocean temperatures. the tropical storms get their energy from the oceans and warmer oceans give it more energy. in decision the warmer atmosphere causes it to have more water vapor and that rains are heavier and floods are greater. also because sea level is rising. that means that these waves are on a higher base. we see all those are connected to global warming. yet no one is talking about that. >> cenk: so, do you think this storm in particular was made worse or intensified by the events you've been talking about, or the climate change you've been warning about? >> absolutely. the things that i mentioned the warmer ocean makes the storms stronger and makes them have more water vapor more rainfall, and heavier floods. >> cenk: do you think this will happen with greater frequency as we go forward? >> yes absolutely. well, we've shown that the temperature anomalies are shifting. there is a natural weather aggravationvariation is very large. the distribution of them is shifting toward warmer climates. so the extreme events like we saw in texas okl
